Hello All!

We're on our way to surpassing 20,000 signatures on the White House
Open Access petition  - in just one week!  - and we need your help to
close this out successfully.

To help drive this effort  home, please consider sending out one more
email blast to your contact lists. This is a truly effective way of
not only getting the word out, but also of showing your support.
Consider a "+1" email request  - encouraging those on your network who
have already signed to recruit a friend or colleague to sign, to be
their "+1." It's a great way to include new voices into the mix!

Our social media efforts have been phenomenally effective - Twitter is
aglow with references to #openaccess and #OAMonday so please use these
hashtags if you tweet. Facebook is also a great way of getting the
petition link out to all of your friends - you can add a link directly
to the petition in your Facebook posting to make it easy for folks to

Here are a few links to include in your email blasts, and to spread
far and wide in your social media endeavors:
